Infiniti Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Infiniti is a regular mistake. And its solution is determined by an assortment of things. If perhaps you want to find out what you should do to fix it then keep on reading.
Let us discuss the key factors to to consider when making a decision whether or not to get the car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in to the Infiniti, considering that the fuel tank capacity of the Infiniti Fx50 is most likely around 90 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, less than 4.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Fx50 will in most cases not really be a big problem. Experience has proven to us that an amount less than 4.5 litres (which is about 5% of the total fuel tank) is oftentimes able to be completely diluted through thoroughly filling up the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It's rather unusual to come across a vehicle having difficulties because of under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is very uncommon - certainly not impossible to encounter. You will discover a few vehicles that will not endure any quantity of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Between 4.5 and 9 litres of Diesel in the Infiniti (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our working experience has proven that as many people get away with this as those who don't. Any time you are deciding whether to risk it and simply fill it up bear in mind that it is much like betting everything on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 9 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Fx50 must promptly be removed since your probability of driving with this quantity of contamination is certainly less than one in fifty - genuinely big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Infiniti and drove it: Have you noted any kind of performance problems as a result of putting the wrong fuel in your Fx50? If you have, have it drained no matter the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Continuing to run running a vehicle that is now beginning to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will probably only cause even more harm affecting the fuel system components.
  3. Do you need security?
    In that case get it removed. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is invariably a certain level of danger caused by operating a Petrol engine on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Possible results of driving a car on the wrong fuel normally include the motor not starting, running lumpy, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or clogged injectors, etc. These are a few of the most common Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and if you recognise any of them then stop and get it drained right away.

Diesel in Petrol FAQs

When someone has put Diesel in a Petrol car they have a few very common questions. So we have compiled a list of the most Frequently Asked Questions for you

I put Diesel in a Petrol car and drove it. What do I do?


Turn off the car as soon as possible and call us. Continuing to run a vehicle on the wrong fuel can potentially damage it. We will be able to give you advice and assistance based on your circumstances

Will driving a Petrol car on Diesel cause damage to it?


It can. However, if the problem is caught and remedied quickly the risks will be minimal. Of the 1,500 vehicles we attend every month, less than 0.5% have suffered and substantial damage requiring parts replacement.

How much Diesel can I get away with in a Petrol car?


The safe answer is none. However you might be able to get away with a very low contamination ratio. That being said, we always highly recommend draining anything over a 5% contamination ratio asap.

I know about petrol in diesel, but what about Super Unleaded?


Putting Super Unleaded, or Shell V-Power, BP Ultimate Unleaded, etc, will have the exact same effect as putting regular unleaded petrol in your diesel car and will need to be drained out and flushed.

Will getting you to do a fuel drain void my warranty?


No! The EU Block Exemption Regulations clearly state that "the work can be carried out by as long as that garage uses manufacturer approved parts and correctly follows the manufacturer's service schedule."

Can I top it up with Petrol and add some 2-stroke oil?


This might work on some vehicles in some cases, but in the majority on instances it won't and you risk damaging the Lambda sensors as well as fuel pump and injectors, just as a regular misfuel.
